Also worth mentioning is that one of the teachers writing my recommendations attended Princeton, and my high school principal went there as well [and has several contacts there]... would that greatly improve my chances?

It would not. You have a shot, but don't set your heart on it.

I would say you don't really have a chance, but you do have enough of a chance to make applying at least kind of worth it. Definitely don't set your heart on it, though, as it would be a reeaaaaaaaaaaaaaach.

I think you definitely have a shot! I'm not sure what motivated Ubercollegeman to say you don't really have a chance. You have great test scores, an impressive course load, and committed community involvement. The only thing it seems you are lacking is leadership roles.
I will not tell you you are a shoo-in but you are certainly Princeton material. If it is a school you are interested in, please research the departments, explore the website, read about the school, and decide if it is where you want to spend your college career(You can't major in Journalism).

I would go for it. All these people doubt people based on test scores and lack of leadership and all the stuff like that. I got in this year with much less than you. You have as good or more of a chance than I did when I applied this past year. Go for it! It can't hurt.
